About Yair Werdyger, TCRG / ADCRG – Founder of the Israeli Academy of Irish Dance.

Yair began learning Irish dancing in Israel 20 years ago. Since there was no one to turn to in order to learn Irish dancing in Israel, he began teaching himself, using videotapes of traditional Irish dancing by Olive Hurley, and also tapes and DVDs of Irish dance shows.

Soon afterwards, in December 2002, he founded the company and school Irish Dance – Israel, and was the first to give Irish dance lessons in Israel.

Yair traveled to Galway to learn Irish dancing with Mary Brady.

In May 2008, Yair passed his TCRG exam and in December 2011, Yair passed his ADCRG exam.

Yair is the only certified adjudicator & teacher in Israel.

 Today, Yair has approximately 250 students studying in his academy. The classes are being held all across Israel.

On January 2013 Yair danced with Lord of the Dance on their Israel tour.

In this days Yair performing in Israel with the Irish dance smash hit show: Mystery of the Dance that he created, teaching and been invited to adjudicate abroad.
